if anything it sounds like a newer version and therefore could well be an upgrade.

i think it is. screw it i'm going to do it. i'll tell you if it exsplodes.

edit

AH, found ot it is the same pump, just the new one has a HUGH flange on it were it's screwed together.

fitted it almost. my engine ate one of the spanners so now i have to wait till tommorow.

edit......again....

dose anyone have a clue were my spanner could have gone. i was using it on the right hand of fuel pump (from the front) and i dropped it then....gone. it's not under the car i can't find the fugging thing
